Is it correct to say: karena mereka membaca itu buku.?

Hi, no that is not correct as the demonstrative "itu" needs to be at the end (or at least follow the noun it is describing) otherwise it sounds awkward. For instance "Mereka membaca ayat itu di buku ini" "They read that verse in this book". Keep practicing it will become very normal quickly.
